Nanoduct Neonatal Sweat Analysis System
Company : Wescor Inc
UMDC Code : 102333
Early diagnosis and treatment can significantly improve both the quality of life and the lifespan of children born with cystic fibrosis. The proven diagnostic effectiveness of analyzing electrolyte concentration in sweat makes it vital to perform this test as soon as possible after birth. Innovative features of the Nanoduct System include the special electrode/sensor holders that are positioned on the patients limb before iontophoresis.
Nanoduct incorporates the classic method of inducing sweat by pilocarpine iontophoresis. The pilocarpine is carried into the dermis of the patient from improved Pilogel Iontophoretic Discs by a controlled DC electric current supplied by the Nanoduct System. This is followed by continuous flow analysis of sweat electrolyte concentration using the unique conductivity sensor. Electrodes and the sensor are connected to the Nanoduct System via a single control cable.
